Getting Started with RSKj

RSKj is the software used to run nodes on the RSK network.

You can run RSKj locally to connect to the public RSK networks - RSK Mainnet, and the RSK Testnet. This is an alternative to connecting to the public nodes.

RSKj can also run in a “localhost”-only environment, without connecting to any public network - RSK Regtest

If you do one of the following activities, you are likely to need to run RSKj on your computer.

  • Development
  • Running nodes
  • Mining

If none of the above applies to you, it is quite likely that you do not need to run RSKj software on your computer.
